Description

Invisibility, time travel, teleportation, mind control, and extended life spans — as strange as they seem, history’s most impossible inventions and hard-to-believe hypotheses may soon be reality. That’s Impossible uncovers the cutting-edge technologies and revolutionary studies that are making the impossible possible by examining history’s most mysterious stories and then evaluating the evidence behind them. Did the United States Navy really teleport a ship, and how did a group of Buddhist monks disappear without explanation? Prominent physicists are uncovering evidence that says that time travel is not just possible, but likely; Duke University unveiled a new material with light-absorbing qualities that could be the first step to a true “invisibility cloak;” and scientists now say they can teleport atomic particles from one place to another, a key component toward developing the “transporters” in Star Trek. Will science fiction soon become history-making fact? Find out in That’s Impossible.

Pseudoscience

In typical Pseudo-History Channel fashion, this documentary series pulls out all the stops in promoting Conspiracy Theories and utter nonsense.
Take the episode on Mind Control for example. They start out reasonably enough, showing a supposed technological breakthrough where paralyzed people can communicate with a device placed at their neck. This is a good idea, but they go out of their way to oversell a device that has yet to reach anywhere near its full potential.
They next give a very brief and generalized overview of the Jonestown Mass Suicide. They did a horrendous job of giving context to why all those people would poison themselves. Like most documentaries on the Pseudo-History Chanell they generalize, quotemine, emphasize the 'strange and unusual' and in general, avoid any sort of decent analysis of the subject. (Not to mention journalistic integrity.)
The final segment of this show is regarding the government's supposed attempt to control the minds of the world. MKUltra is certainly a worthwhile subject to go into, but the HAARP conspiracy theories are ridiculous and based on nothing more than speculation by crackpots. You'll also notice how they repeatedly mention people who have supposedly have been the victims of government mind control but quickly gloss over this. You would think they might ask these supposed victims if a) they have a history of mental illness, b) if they have ever been institutionalized c) if they have ever been drug addcits. Do they do that? No, of course not. The producers would rather imply that there are thousands of mind control victims out there who are perfectly sane and that's that. This is typical of Pseudo-History Channel documentaries, they want to sell outragous claims so they go out of their way to present crackpots as credible witnesses and conspiracy theories as facts. If you enjoy watching people commit logical fallacies you'll enjoy this ridiculous show.
Also, I have seen other episodes of this show and they weren't any better. I only use the Mind Control episode as an expample because it exemplifies just how horrifically illogical most of this channel's documentaries are.

One of History Channels Best Programs

This show is amazing. It creates the same effect that the matrix had, it makes you think. What would the world be like if all of this became possible. Even though we are close to achieving some of these ideas, its just scary to think of a world with them.

Amazing

This is an amazing show defintely worth the cost an amazing series
